Both cottages exude country charm combined with 21st Century comfort and style. An ideal base for 2 people, with or without dogs, looking for a home from home.

Walk straight onto the National Trust's Bickerton Hills on the famous Sandstone Trail whilst you car charges (for free) back at your temporary home from home. Enjoy magnificent views stretching to Liverpool's two cathedrals, the Welsh hills, Cheshire and Shropshire. Explore the historic city of Chester and visit some of the 18 National Trust places within a 30 mile radius. Immerse yourself in history at one of the many local castles such as Beeston Castle & Peckforton Castle. Take a trip to one of the many wonderful pubs in the area.

'Impeccable accommodation - we just keep coming back. Perfect countryside location not far from Chester ... I feel slightly guilty for not posting a review sooner, but you are tempted to keep such a good find to oneself ... Thanks to Jackie and Ray who always made us feel so very welcome.' Bill, Newcastle upon Tyne, January 2017 TripAdvisor.

Meet the owner

Jackie & Ray Pearson

After living and working in rural France for 9 years, Jackie & Ray, along with Amie (the now bi-lingual French Labrador), moved back to the UK. ''We were searching for something a bit special. We had worked together project managing property conversions and were often asked to continue looking after them for the absent owners as holiday accommodation. A run-down bakery, with worker's cottages and grain stores were beguiling. The location, a small rural Cheshire village, fantastic countryside with walks and views, yet not far from a wonderful Roman city, Chester. It all felt perfect. We were able to indulge our interest in modern green technology whilst keeping the original character of the building. We are proud of our Gold Green Tourism Award. Our family now includes include 2 bee hives and around 20 happy hens enabling us to share wonderful wildflower honey and fresh eggs with our guests and friends.
